Environmental problem-solving
GSL teachers attend Colorado workshop
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer magine heading west, to the mountainous state of Colorado for six days of work — work that includes an early hike to see the sunrise along the Continental Divide, a tour of an old mine, and a journey through the scenic Loveland Pass of the Rocky Mountains. Glencoe-Silver Lake High School teachers Richard Smith and Terry Becker did just that. They headed to Silverthorne, Colo. at the end of June for a career development opportunity about bringing environmental issues into the classroom. Smith, a science teacher at GSL, said the trip was sponsored by 3M, which meant very little in costs for him and Becker. “Three years ago, I read in the Herald Journal that Lester Prairie received a similar grant for a trip like this, so I contacted Jan Johnson, who was employed in HR (human resources) at 3M, and she had told me about this opportunity to Colorado,” Smith said.

The pair joined 37 other teachers from all over the United States, including three from Minnesota and one from Canada, for a six-day workshop at the Keystone Institute. Smith and Becker said the instructors set up a “mock scenario” of an environmental issue. “They created a fake town, Silver Springs, and gave us an issue to resolve. All we knew was that people in this ‘fake town’ were getting sick. It was 25 percent of the town’s population that were ill, but no tourists. We were given their symptoms, which included fever and diarrhea — very similar to the symptoms of food poisoning,” Smith said. He added that it was a “problem-solving workshop” that catered to many disciplines of teaching, including language arts, social studies, math and science. “We knew it was an issue with water contamination, and from there, we all worked together to find the culprit,” Smith said.

Council delays street project; bids too high
By Rich Glennie Editor Glencoe City Council on Monday night held a supplemental public hearing on the proposed 2013 street improvement project, but then delayed the project until 2014 because bids came in higher than expected. As a result, City Council canceled awarding the bids for the $2 million project, and canceled an assessment hearing as well as the sale of bonds for the work. The 2013 project was to include partial reconstruction of several streets, overlay work on others and crack and sealcoating of even more streets in the western one-third of Glencoe. More extensive street reconstruction was originally scheduled for 2014 in the southwest corner of Glencoe in the Lincoln Park area. City Administrator Mark Larson said the engineer’s estimate to do the 2013 street improvements was $2.09 million, but the lowest of two bids came in at $2.3 million, or about 10 percent higher than expected. The bidders also indicated that due to the late start for the work, the project could not be done this year. It was recommended that the bids be rejected and rebid again early next year so the project could be done in the summer 2014.

Jail/security improvements could cost up to $7 million
By Lori Copler Staff Writer Proposed security improvements to the McLeod County Courthouse have apparently evolved into an approximately $7 million project, prompting the Board of Commissioners to request County Attorney Mike Junge to petition the District Court to have money released from the Annamarie Tudhope estate to help cover the costs. Tudhope, former owner and publisher of the Glencoe Enterprise, left the bulk of her estate — between $4 and $5 million — to the county with the intent that the money be used for the construction of a new jail in Glencoe. But Junge said that petitioning the court for a ruling may be premature at this time since the County Board has yet to officially pass a motion to pursue a project, and suggested it first put into place a process for getting information out to the public about its proposal. Commissioner Sheldon Nies agreed. Nies said the County Board has heard a proposal from Wold Architects for an approximately $7 million project at a workshop session. Nies said that Wold should be invited to give its “dog and pony

Recyling numbers jump with city’s 1-sort program
By Rich Glennie Editor Glencoe City Council heard that participation in its one-sort recycling program implemented in May has been growing each month. Using statistics provided by Waste Management, City Administrator Mark Larson said curbside one-sort recycling in May was 24 tons, up from 14.5 tons in 2012. In June, the one-sort numbers were 24.2 tons compared to 13.5 tons in 2012. But the numbers jumped 103 percent, Larson said, in July with one-sort taking in 30.85 tons during the month compared to 15.2 tons in July 2012. He added that the numbers in 2013 do not include particpation from the GSL School District under the 2012 fivesort program. Correspondingly, Larson said, Waste Management reported that garbage tonnage in July was down 31 tons. “There is an impact on garbage going to the landfill,” Larson said. In other matters, City Council: • Heard from David Nelson, president of the Glencoe Area Chamber of Commerce, that an application has been made for an $85,922 Minnesota Historical & Cultural Heritage grant to repair the north side of the Glencoe Event Center. The former high school building is on the National Registry of Historic Places and thus qualifies for the “Legacy” grant process, Nelson said. If approved, the project needs to be completed within a year. Nelson said the city should learn if its application was accepted sometime in November. If approved, repair work could begin in 2014. • Heard an update of proposed campground improvements at Oak Leaf Park. Mike Drew, public works superintendent for the streets and parks, said there is potential for 15 RV campsites located throughout park and along the “ring road” of Oak Leaf Park. The layout would force traffic to go one way through the park. After meeting with Minnesota Department of Health officials, it was determined the Aquatic Center restroom and shower facilities could be utilized by campers during swimming hours at the Aquatics Center. “We have everything out there that we need,” Drew said, and at less than the estimated $400,000 originally needed. Upgrades would be needed on the sewer, water and electrical utilities, and cost estimates are now being developed. One change will require moving the frisbee golf course that currently runs throughout the park. When first laid out, the golf course went through the major picnic area, and that has caused problems. A professional course designer is being hired to lay out a regulation course. One area being eyed is the unused property behind the softball fields. Drew said a proposal is likely to be presented to City Council at its next meeting.

It was felt the bids might be more favorable next year. Larson said contractors are busy this year, and the cost of materials, like blacktop, has increased as well. City Council approved rejecting the bids. The supplemental public hearing was needed in order to rectify an error in printing of legal notices in June. The confusion occurred about the time the Glencoe Enterprise, the official newspaper of the city at the time, was sold to McLeod Publishing, owner of The McLeod County Chronicle. That confusion delayed the proper publication of notice for the public hearing, and that further delayed the project. After Monday’s public hearing, Council ratified the improvement project resolution that replaced a June resolution. During the public hearing, Earl Dammann, a resident on West 13th Street, questioned the assessments for the street improvements. It was estimated the assessments would be about $33 per frontage foot, but that depended on the actual bids. Dammann said his street is really a frontage or service road. Instead of a 40-foot wide city street, his is 24 feet wide. He said he and his neighbors are concerned about how the work will be assessed. “We’d like it to be assessed fairly,” Dammann added. Dammann also questioned whether easements on the property are assessed. Larson said easements are still owned by the property owners and are still assessed. Larson said concerns like Dammann’s are generally addressed during the actual assessment hearing that is part of the process. That hearing was scheduled for Sept. 3, but with the rejection of the bids and delay of the project, that hearing was canceled.

show” at a regular County Board meeting, the time and date of which should be publicized so that the public has a chance to listen in and offer comments. Nies noted that the County Board has been criticized for not publicizing its discussions on the recently adopted wheelage tax, which he said was the result of time restraints. “But we certainly don’t want that to happen with this here,” Nies said of the proposed jail security project. Junge also said that the County Board needs to adopt a plan because it will need to outline specifically to the court how the money would be spent so that a judge could determine if that intent is in keeping with the “spirit” of Tudhope’s bequest, which was specifically targeted toward the construction of a new jail. Junge indicated that the proposed plan will include the construction of a new, secure lobby that will be shared by the sheriff’s department and the jail, as well as other improvements to the jail. Those items may be in keeping with the intent of Tudhope’s bequest. Junge said he would liken Tudhope’s bequest to that of a charitable trust fund. By statute, any ruling on dispensing of the funds also has to go through the Attorney General’s office, Junge added. Nies said that any construction probably will not begin until next spring or summer, so the County Board has time to go through the proper process for adopting a project. Nies suggested inviting Wold to the County Board’s Sept. 17 meeting for an official presentation. Later in the morning, during a workshop session on long-range planning, the County Board also suggested that Wold look at potential improvements to the county’s other buildings. Commissioner Paul Wright suggested putting together a “package” of proposed improvements that will “address our needs for the next 30 years.” Wright noted that interest rates are expected to start ratcheting up, and the county could take advantage of the currently low bond interest rates. Commissioner Ron Shimanski said that having a “package” of proposed improvements could allow the county to implement the improvements in phases, rather than doing one major project. Nies suggested talking to Wold at the Sept. 17 meeting about what would be involved in a study of longterm building improvements, after Wold makes its presentation on the security and jail improvements.

City seeks additional funding
County will now only pay 50% of Morningside cost
By Rich Glennie Editor In a terse, one paragraph letter, the McLeod County Board of Commissioners denied a Glencoe City Council resolution of cost-sharing on the proposed Morningside Avenue extension project. Glencoe City Council had based its cost estimates for the project on a 70/30 percent sharing of the county-city project. But the County Board, in a letter from County Administrator Patrick Melvin, stated that after a brief discussion at its June 18 Board meeting, “a motion by Commissioner (Sheldon) Nies and seconded by Commissioner (Ron) Shimanski to split the costs associated with the Morningside project 50/50 with the city of Glencoe. This motion was passed unanimously.” The result is the city’s share of the cost rose $1.5 million from $900,000 on the $3.2 million project. The project, originally scheduled for 2014, would extend Morningside Avenue north from 11th Street to 16th Street. It also would involve drainage improvements in the northeast corner of Glencoe, moving of the railroad crossing and switching area as well as the construction of a roundabout at the north end of the Morningside near the high school. At the 70/30 percent split, City Administrator Mark Larson said the city planned to advance borrow on its municipal state aid funds to pay for its share. But he said the city struggled for its $900,000 share even at the 70/30 percent split. Now at 50/50 percent, Larson said there is a funding gap, because the city could not advance $1.5 million in its municipal state aid. “I’m not sure how to fund a $1 million gap,” he added. The original project cost was $2 million when first discussed about five years ago, with the county paying $1.4 million. Larson said the city looks at the project as one with “regional significance,” and will now seek legislative help to fill the funding gap. Larson said local legislators will be contacted to see if they will carry a bill to include the Morningside project in the state’s bonding bill next session. That funding would be for about $1 million to $1.3 million. Also included in the original project is about $270,000 in federal funding to address the railroad crossing work. That remains in the budget. Asked whether Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funds might be available because of the drainage issues around the Morningside project, Larson admitted that storm water and ponding issues in that area “have increased the costs” of the Morningside project. The flooding in June further pointed out that tiles to the east “took a considerable time to drain,” Larson said, indicating problems in that area leading to the east ditch system. Larson also said the project is a benefit to the county, because the flooding also impacted the county’s North Complex that was shut down for a day due to the water backup in the city’s stormwater drainage system. It was noted that McLeod County was recently included as part of the disaster area in the state, and additional funding may be available to address stormwater issues. The cost of the stormwater portion of the Morningside project was estimated at $300,000. Mayor Randy Wilson agreed that the Morningside project is of regional importance, and he agreed more funding should be pursued through the state bonding bill. “How are other projects with the county funded?” asked council member Kevin Dietz. “Is this the new standard — 50/50?” Wilson indicated Glencoe Commissioner Kermit Terlinden told him that is the case. But council member Dan Perschau stressed that if that is official county policy, “it should be stated clearly” by the county commissioners “and be answered definitively.” “And all others in the county should know it, too,” Wilson added. “It should be the same for all.”

Concussion checks part of eligibility meetings
Marielle Gatenby, certified athletic trainer with Ridgeview Rehab Specialities, announced that she will be conducting Neuro-cognitive Baseline Testing using the ImPACT system on Aug. 9 at the eligibility meeting. ImPACT (Immediate PostConcussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is the first, most widely used, and most scientifically validated computerized concussion evaluation system, Gatenby said. “Given the inherent difficulties in concussion management, it is important to manage concussions on an individualized basis and to implement baseline testing and/or post-injury neurocognitive testing,” Gatenby said. “This type of concussion assessment can help to objectively evaluate the concussed athlete’s post-injury condition and track recovery for safe return to play, thus preventing the cumulative effects of a concussion.” The testing will take place as follows: Grades 9 and 11 volleyball, Aug. 8, at 4:45 p.m. (meet at computer lab Room 121). Grades 9 and 11, boys and girls soccer, Aug. 8, at 4:45 p.m. (meet at computer lab Room 121). Grades 9 and 11, football, Aug. 8, at 5:15 p.m. (meet at computer lab Room 121). “If you have already had a baseline in the last year with Ridgeview, you DO NOT need to test again,” Gatenby said. If not sure, contact Gatenby at Marielle.gatenby@ridgeviewmedical.org. If your son or daughter participates in GSL activities and you are not on this list for testing but would like a baseline, please contact Gatenby at marielle.gatenby@ ridgeviewmedical.org. to discuss testing availability. Winter activities will test during the winter activities registration.

County commissioners just piling on with new wheelage tax
Our view: New $10 tax for vehicle licenses just adds to last legislative barrage of new taxes
s if we need another tax, now the McLeod County Board of Commissioners comes along last week and approves, on a 3-2 vote, a new $10 wheelage tax on all car licenses. The new tax kicks in Jan. 1. We agree with the minority. That tax, although addressing a need of lagging of transportion funding for roads and bridges in the county, is just another excuse to tax Minnesotans. We received enough of that with the DFL-controlled Legislature last session, and we expect more tax hikes in the upcoming 2014 session, still under DFL control. We do not need the county piling on, too. According to the Association of Minnesota Counties, 47 of Minnesota’s 87 counties have imposed the $10 per vehicle wheelage tax as a way to supplement their local road and bridge improvement budgets. We have no disagreement that roads and bridges need attention. Anyone driving on outstate highways and county roads knows what condition they are in. But there remains a constant battle for the finite state funds available through the curent state’s gas taxes, and mass transit is gobbling up more of the pie at the expense of outstate Minnesota transportation needs. Rather than raising more taxes, there needs to be a more equitable distribution of the gas tax dollars. That, however, will not happen. The political reality is the metro area has more votes in the Legislature. Therefore, the metro gets what it wants. So why give counties more taxing authority? There is the theory that local control is best control. Granted. Also, local control means local responsibility. When things go wrong, the locals get the blame. At the same time of the wheelage tax debate was discussion by county commissioners about a one-half of 1

A
percent countywide sales tax. Thankfully, the county commissioners nixed that idea. They should have nixed the wheelage tax as well. So, is there a guarantee the additional $10 per licensed vehicle will actually go toward improving McLeod County roads and bridges? We trust that it will. But we tend to be a bit leery of political promises. We were told similar promises in the past. When the state Lottery was initiated about 25 years ago, the proceeds were not supposed to go into the state general fund, yet that is where most of it went. The state gas tax amendment was supposed to dedicate those funds toward transportation needs, like roads and bridges throughout the state. Yet more and more of it is being poured into metro mass transit projects that most of us will never utilize. And toss in the Vikings and Twins stadiums boondoggles, and you can see the trend that promises are easily broken or conveniently forgotten. No general tax dollars for the Vikings, remember? And who says the passage of a wheelage tax in McLeod County is not the beginning of a trend toward more specialized taxes at the state, county and even city level. Hutchinson already has a half-cent sales tax in place. How about Glencoe? Or Silver Lake? You get the picture. If a wheelage tax had to be enacted, the county commissioners should revisit it and “sunset” it, so it does not become permanent. That, of course, is a ludicrous idea. Whenever a new tax is enacted, it never ceases. Just ask those who started Minnesota’s first temporary sales tax years ago. Government’s appetite for spending never stops. The only certainties in life are death and taxes, it is said. Welcome to the money trough, county commissioners. — R.G.
Letters to the Editor Hey, women: ‘Wake up and smell the coffee!’
To the Editor: “Wake up and smell the coffee!” Women of a certain age will recognize the preceding expression as the trademark of one of the first of many advice columns, Ann Landers. It was usually followed by advice that would leave you slapping your head in recognition. Did you know that the slaves were freed before women had the right to vote? During the bra-burning era, women were fighting for their place in society both as professionals and equal rights. Notice, I say equal, not superior to or with condescension. Women were fighting for the right to education and to pursue professional goals in addition to teaching, nursing, home-ec teachers, or secretaries. Rosie the Riveter during World War II gave women the hope that they could make a living and support their children if need be. We lived through the era of the “Mad Men” and fighting for recognition for our minds. The single greatest thing that happened in our lifetime was the event of improved methods of birth control. It gave women the choice of whether to have another child or not. It gave them the flexibility to pursue a career outside the home and have a better life for their families and their children. Society was the better for it. To coin another popular phrase, “You've Come A Long Way, Baby” — and we have. More women than men now are college graduates and are assuming positions of power. Women bring to the work place things that appear to be alien to minds of men, little things like compromise when there is an impasse – we can work it out and if each side gives a little, we both can win. Hiliary Clinton said in her recent address to the Clinton Global Initiative that statistically women have provided valuable assets to the working world. Episcopalian Bishop Gene Robinson said in one of the speeches he gave on Public Radio that the establishment that is in power structures the playing field so that they remain in power. He was talking about something other than women's rights, but he could well have been. The whole reason for the history lesson is that women’s rights, especially the right to her own body, are being chipped away. Wendy Davis, from the great state of Texas, stood in filibuster for 11 hours during a special session called by Gov. Rick Perry to pass a horribly restrictive law regarding women's rights to clinics that provide health care to women. The sad part of this whole scenario is that Texas is not the only state where this is happening. North Carolina is doing a good job of it and other states as well. This is all done under the auspices of “looking out for women's health” — as if we don’t have the brains to do it ourselves. We need protection, all right – protection from that kind of thinking. All we want is to able to make our own decisions about our own bodies. We want to have access to affordable health care – if it is from a clinic where women can go to protect their health, so be it. Just when you think all those battles have been fought and overcome, there sprouts this kind of nonsense all over again. Thinking people would think this is moot point, but this is not about thinking people. This is about power, pure and simple. I never could understand what was so threatening about women that they had to be subdued. Then maybe we should do studies on the possible adverse side effects of Cialis and Viagra and outlaw their use until proven 100 percent safe – now there is food for thought. So, my compatriot women, “Wake up and smell the coffee!” Be ever vigilant, so we don’t have to fight this fight over and over again. Jan Conner Hutchinson
Overkill by metro media on same-sex marriages
pare us the unending coverage of same-sex marriage and the hoopla surrounding it. Enough is enough! The Twin Cities media — TV and newspapers — have gone overboard on a topic that is still raw with many Minnesotans, who do not support same-sex marriage, despite what the
S
Legislature approved last session. Now that it is law, let us all move on. Shoving this coverage down our throats does not make it any more palatable. Of course, we could always turn off the TV and not open the newspapers as an alternative. — R.G.
Glencoe’s blood drive reaches goal of 112 units
To the Editor: I want to thank the Glencoe and Glencoe-area residents for their response in helping the Glencoe Community Blood Drive reach our goal of 112 units on Wednesday, July 31. There were 12 walk-ins, and 11 people who were not qualified or able to give blood at this drive. At the end of the day, we had 78 people qualified to donate whole blood, and 17 additional people were able to donate a “double dose” of double red cells. That totaled our 112 units which the American Red Cross set as a goal for us at this blood drive. Each unit donated has the potential to help up to three patients, so the donations you made may help up to 336 people who truly need your gift of life. My great thanks go to the teams of faithful community volunteers who make each and every drive possible! Also thank you to those businesses who contributed to our success at this drive: Glencoe Lions Club, Coborn’s, Security Bank, the Glencoe City Center for the use of their facility, and Keebler Corporation for their nationwide support of the American Red Cross. This drive we also received a generous donation of certificates from Culver’s in Hutchinson for free pints of frozen custard; the certificates were part of their Give a Pint — Get a Pint program to thank blood donors for their lifesaving donations. We thank Culver’s for their generosity! Finally, I want to mention a small discouragement for me. Thirty-two people who made appointments to donate blood were no-shows. We always have a number of no-shows at each drive, but this time the number seemed to be much higher. In fact, the 32 no-shows amounted to 24 percent of the total appointments that were scheduled for the drive. The American Red Cross sends out crews and beds based on the number of potential donors scheduled for the day. There were periods of time that we had empty beds and underutilized Red Cross personnel. I realize some unexpected things can pop up that keep you from keeping your appointment. But also consider the consequences of not appearing for your appointment: up to three patients who may have needed your donation did not get it from Glencoe or 32 x 3 = 96 patients who will now need to receive their lifesaving gift from another source. Our next Glencoe Community Blood Drive is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 27, the day before Thanksgiving. Please mark your calendar and consider making an appointment. Many time slots have already been reserved; if you also wish to do so, please call our scheduling chairperson, Nelda, at 320864-3475. Lives are depending on you. Thank you, all, for your generosity and caring. Charleen Engelmann, Coordinator, Glencoe Community Blood Drive

Preliminary budget sees more LGA, steady levy
By Rich Glennie Editor Glencoe City Council took a look at its preliminary 2014 budget Monday night that included additional local government aid (LGA) and a steady tax levy, “that could possibly go down,” according to City Administrator Mark Larson. The LGA the city will receive increased by more than $231,000 to $1.294 million in 2014, Larson said. The local tax levy, funds raised through property taxes, will be about $1.47 million, but could potentially be reduced, he added. Projected revenues are at $3.425 million with expenses at $3.351 million “with no cuts, yet. And there is room to cut,” Larson said. The goal is to keep the tax levy from going up, Larson said. He also said because of the increase in LGA, residents could see their property taxes go down. But Larson also said the city has “equipment needs that have been neglected over the years” of tight budgets. He said the budget process still needs to look at all of the city’s equipment needs. One area being looked at is to alter the 2013 equipment purchases in order to buy equipment that can be used year-round rather than just seasonally. One example is purchasing a payloader with a plow wing for snowplowing to replace the grader, according to Mike Drew, public works supervisor for streets and parks. A leaf vaccuum system also is being looked at to save on the wear and tear of the city street sweeper. Another area being looked at may be an increase in the stormwater utility fee to help with manhole rehabilitation and work on ponds and wetlands issues. As to the preliminary budget, Larson said department heads have submitted their capital budget requests that now will be studied and prioritized. He said there would be no added city staff. The preliminary budget needs to be approved by midSeptember, and the final budget approval comes in early December. In other matters, City Council: • Renewed a lease contract with Buffalo Creek BMX Track. “They’ve done a real good job,” Mayor Randy Wilson said of the BMX track organizers. Drew agreed and said the group has now purchased its own set of bleachers. “They continually work on it,” Drew said of the facility located in Sterner Park on 9th Street. Council member Kevin Dietz said the BMX track “gives activities to a lot of kids.” Council member John Schrupp added that there are events there every Tuesday, and it hosts state qualifying events as well. He estimated that are 22 to 25 events at the track each summer, and it attracts people from around the region. • Approved a resolution on an annual maintenance grant with the Minnesota Department of Transportation for snow removal, grass cutting work at the municipal airport. The grant is worth $13,776 for fiscal years 2014 and 2015. • Approved a lease agreement with Terry Anderson to build a privately owned hangar at the airport. The city will swap property with Anderson, who owns an access road to the hangars that was built in the 1990s. • Approved a resolution to extend tax increment finance (TIF) district No. 4 to 2023. The district, that includes the original industrial park properties, was set to expire in 2013. But special legislative action extended the life of the district to help fund debt service on two other TIFs — District 14 (downtown redevelopment) and No. 15 (newest industrial park). • Approved a 10-year lease agreement with Jungclaus Implement on unplatted cemetery property at the end of 6th Street for used implement storage. Jungclaus Implement would pay $250 a month rent the first five years and $300 a month the second five years. It also would be responsible for maintaining the property and providing a screen between the implement area and the rest of the cemetery. Council member Gary Ziemer, who also sits on the cemetery board, said the lease was discussed at length by the board before it recommended approval. He said the board’s biggest concern was with the screening of the property. Drew said four types of bushes will be planted as the screen, and Jungclaus is responsible for the costs. Larson said use of the cemetery property is not foreseen in the next 10 years due to changes in cemetery burials in recent years. Those changes have driven down the cemetery’s fund reserves, “but there is still a healthy fund balance.” • Heard that a 75th anniversary open house is planned by the Glencoe Light & Power Commission. The open house is planned for 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 22.

Jackie Lemke, daughter of Mary and Jon Lemke of Glencoe, reads to Jackie Moehring and her goldendoodle, Wilma, during the Glencoe Library’s Reading Ed-

Canine friend helps little children learn to read
By Jackee Fountain Head librarian Beginning readers need many different opportunities to read aloud. Some children read to family, some to stuffed friends, others read to themselves. The Glencoe Public Library has been part of the R.E.A.D. Library Program (Reading Education Assistance Dogs) this summer. The R.E.A.D. program is part of the Paws Inn Resort’s PAWS INSIGHT READERS, which provides teams of trained dogs to visit libraries and educational institutions to fulfill the goal of listening to children read. Wilma, a 3-year-old goldendoodle dog, has visited the library each Monday evening for an hour to listen to children read books, talk to her, and give her a treat for being a good listener. Wilma’s handler and owner, Jackie Moehring of Glencoe, has enjoyed sharing Wilma with young readers. Explaining the program, Moehring said, “Wilma and I attended classes for about six to eight weeks, practiced our training at home, and tested to be a registered therapy dog before a R.E.A.D. certified dog.” Each handler also takes a written test in conjunction with an online course. Thus each therapy/R.E.A.D. dog and handler is a team. Team Wilma also visits hospitals and nursing homes. The dogs are also kept up with grooming and health to continue to be therapy dogs. In talking with Moehring, she explained which qualities are needed for therapy and R.E.A.D. dogs. “Certain dog breeds are better suited to be therapy dogs. They should be mellow, trainable, and be compassionate towards people,” Moehring said. When Moehring was asked what influenced her to be a handler and have Wilma participating in the R.E.A.D. program, she answered, “Ever since I met a trained goldendoodle, I always wanted a goldendoodle and wanted to take dog therapy classes. Wilma fulfilled that dream!” In addition, Moehring also said she is an avid reader; thus, her intent for sharing Wilma with beginning readers. When observing Wilma and Moehring at work, one can see Moehring’s love for her dog and how she shares Wilma with the little children who are reading. The children enjoyed reading a book to Wilma as they were petting her or snuggling next to Wilma. What a positive reading experience for the young children to have at the library!
Couple killed in South Dakota motorcycle crash
That’s pretty much manmade,” Smith said. Becker said the workshop focused a lot on sustainability — making choices regarding ethics, environment and economics. “When we had to role play as Realtors, our solutions to solve the problem included getting rid of the contaminated water, selling land and moving people into the city, whereas the farmers were concerned about how the contaminated water was going to get removed. “In the end, we found out that it was a tainted well, where someone disposed of chemicals illegally, and we had to locate other affected wells. So we all had to brainstorm on how to solve the issue,” Smith said. He and Becker said they were given choices to “excavate the area, use bioremediation, a 100 percent natural way to remove contaminated soils, vitrification, which is an electroshock method to remove the contaminated water, incinerate the contamination or contain it.” “It was really interesting. Some methods were more costly, such as the vitrification, and others were not time-efficient, such as bioremediation. You thought about the best method as your given role,” Smith said. “It was a really, really good group of people to work with. I’d definitely like to incorporate a similar town meeting for students for sure. It really made an impact on real-life situations. My job is to always get the kids to think,” Smith said. Becker said the workshop also included a tour to the Country Boy Mines, an early morning hike to see the sunrise along the Continental Divide, and a visit to the Loveland Pass. “It was a great time. Definitely well worth it,” Becker said. According to the Associated Press in Sioux Falls the South Dakota Highway Patrol reported a Brandon, S.D., couple on a motorcycle, Rich Feltman and his wife, Janis, both 61, died in a crash with a minivan in Brookings on Saturday, Aug. 3, in Brookings. The Feltmanns are former residents of Norwood Young America. The crash occurred in a two-lane construction zone along Interstate 29. According to the AP report, troopers say the motorcycle veered into the path of the minivan and struck the minivan driven by 60-year-old Lynne Louise Duin of Estelline. The patrol says Duin suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Becker said the group had to work its way through the scenario, test the water quality in the city and find the cause and effect of the illness on the townspeople. “We had to test all of our theories, so we actually went out and screened water for insects, and in the classroom, we tested the water for chemicals and took samples of contaminated waters. Everything was simulated. It was interesting,” Becker said. He said the instructors had all the materials and labs ready for the group to solve the problem. “I was very impressed at how organized everything was,” he said. He added that a large binder was given to each teacher, and was “very well organized” with tabs for each teaching discipline, work sheets, and other methods for problem solving. “Then at the end of the week, it sort of became a drama with us acting,” Smith said. He said he and Becker were given roles as Realtors and others were playing parts of a mayor, business owners, farmers, townspeople, etc. “Once we discovered the problem, then we had to figure out how to solve it as our given roles,” Smith said. He added that the different roles had different ideas of how to remove the contaminated waters from the fake city of Silver Springs. “This is a great tool to bring back to the classroom to teach students about working together,” Smith said. “This is the sort of thing that will get the kids to think. To show them that solutions to problems are more than ‘my’ view. It shows them that everything has pros and cons,” Smith added. Becker said the workshop taught him how to teach “the powers of 10 more easily. “They had different solutions of water and food coloring and showed us 10 percent, 1 percent, 1/10 of a percent, etc. It’s something I’ll try to incorporate in my lessons,” Becker said. He added that the scenario also showed the teachers how to portray the different numbers on the Richter Scale and how to teach logarithms. “They also demonstrated parts per million by giving us a container of one million beads. 900,000 of them were blue, nine thousand of them were a different color, and 900 were another color, and so on, and then there was one black bead in that mix we had to find,” Becker said. “It was a great way to show quantities,” he added. “That demonstration was also to show us that some things, like certain bacteria can be 100 per million, and not harm us, but that one bead per million could kill us,” Smith said. He said the institute will send kits with these tools to him and Becker for use in the classroom. “One of the most interesting things about this opportunity was seeing how interdisciplinary it could be. Also, working with other teachers around the United States was great, on a networking aspect,” Smith said. “I was impressed with the classes. This was all done for us and really well prepared. We actually got to head to water for testing, and we got to work both inside and outside to solve the issue,” Becker said. Smith said the classes were meant to highlight key issues in the United States, especially environment and economics. “One of the most interesting things I learned was that when the early settlers were first mining in Colorado, they just dug a hole, deep into the ground, but then they found gold in the rivers. They would dredge the whole river panning for gold,” he said. “The Blue River was dredged to nothing, and now?

100 Years Ago
Aug. 8, 1913 O.C. Conrad, Editor Grain cutting is finished and stacking is the general of the day. The hum of the threshing machine will soon be heard abroad in the land. The concrete abutments and center pier for the railroad crossing across Buffalo Creek were completed yesterday. The contractor and crew left immediately for Manilla, Iowa, to do work of a like nature. In our item in last week’s Bulletin regarding the accidental death of the little Schmitz girl being run over by an automobile, it should have read P.L. Schmitz instead of E.N. Schmitz. We were misinformed in this respect and gladly make the correction. The big steam shovel working across Lake Addie was forced to cease operations Tuesday on account of a lack of help. Bigger wages are drawing men who want to work to the harvest fields, while the professional hobo cannot be induced to work at any price. age of 80. A native of Prussia, she and her husband, Jacob Rolfs, were among the early settlers of Brownton. Julius Schlink, who had been a resident of this community the past 41 years, passed to his heavenly home here last Friday at the age of 93 years. A native of Germany, he came to America in 1893 and he and his wife, Bertha, settled in Brownton, where he did masonry work for many years. One of Henry Engelsmeier’s yearling colts strayed into town last Friday evening during the heavy rain and was hit by the fast flyer, which passes through here about 8:45 p.m. The horse was hit just east of the crossing by the Albert Gehrke home. The animal was mangled to bits by the train wheels and parts of the body were found along the tracks for nearly a mile. The head of the horse was found near the Albert Dennin farm. A business deal was completed the latter part of last week in which William Torrey sold his Road House near the south shore of Lake Marion to Duell Cayott of Stewart. station agent at Brownton from 1912 to 1920, was buried Tuesday, July 30, at Sunset Memorial Cemetery, Minneapolis. After working at Brownton, Mr. Smith went to Hopkins and later to Montevideo in employment with the Chicago, Milwaukee and Puget Sound railway. He retired and had lived in Minneapolis the past few years. Once again this year, the Western Mounted Paraders Saddle Club will take part in the Minnesota State Fair as one of four clubs selected to perform for fair goers.

100 Years Ago
Aug. 8, 1913 A.F. Avery, Editor The annual meeting of the qualified voters of School District 33 was held at the high school Saturday evening. Incumbents Fred Rehse and M.B. July were re-elected to the board with 70 and 51 votes respectively, while the Rev. C.H. Kowalske received 34 votes. Hitching posts were installed along the west side of Busse Bros.’ store this week. R.F. Mittlestadt has fitted up his saloon with a Blau-gas lighting plant, with a hot plate for cooking. Fred Rehse also has a plant partly installed in his residence. Blau-gas has been introduced to the west and many excellent features are claimed for it. E. Lonset, formerly of Gibbon but for the last three years a resident of St. Paul, has opened a photo studio in the Hassan building. He will move his family to Stewart later on. Tuesday was a day of accidents. Gus Rehse was trimming trees when a branch struck him in the head back of the right ear, causing an ugly wound which required a doctor’s care. Ludwig Becke fell from a haystack at Emil Pagel’s and fractured his collar bone. Mrs. A.F. Bulau of Round Grove broke the large bone in her right ankle when her foot turned as she stepped off a platform at her home. The accident “jinx” was right on the job Tuesday.
75 Years Ago
Aug. 5, 1938 Harry Koeppen, Editor Fred Brede of Round Grove reported last Saturday that his Thatcher wheat from a sevenacre field had yielded 149 bushels, and that the wheat weighed 56 pounds to the bushel. A large field of oats yielded over 46 bushels to the acre, but the grain was lightweight, according to Mr. Brede. A.M. “Tony” Ewert, prominent Collins farmer, received $10.10 per hundredweight, the day’s top price, at South St. Paul, on a shipment of 172-pound butcher hogs that he made on Tuesday, July 26. Tony is rather proud of the price he received for his porkers, as he should be. The sounding of the fire siren last Friday morning caused the local department to start on a run to the Fahse place, but the boys were met on the way and told that the blaze had been extinguished by prompt action. A skittish team tipped a load of bushels on top of a tractor, heat from which started them on fire. The burning bundles were near a large barn, which created a dangerous situation, but the blaze was put out before the barn caught fire.

3-car accident claims life of Lester Prairie woman
Guadalupe Paredes Ruelas, 43, of Lester Prairie, was killed in a July 26 accident in Young America Township, Carver County. According to Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson, deputies responded, along with Norwood Young America Fire and Rescue, the Minnesota State Patrol and Ridgeview Ambulance, to a three-car motor vehicle crash on CSAH 33 at CSAH 34 in Young America Township at approximately 5 p.m. A vehicle traveling westbound on CSAH 34 failed to stop at the intersection of CSAH 33 and struck the rear of a vehicle traveling northbound on CSAH 33. After being struck, the northbound vehicle spun into the southbound traffic lane and was struck in the driver’s door by a southbound vehicle. The damage to the spinning vehicle was severe, and the driver, Ruelas, died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash. Olson said there were no obvious signs of trauma or severe injury to any of the other motorists involved in the crash, and all were transported to Ridgeview Medical Center for evaluation. There was no evidence or signs of impairment of the drivers involved in this incident, Olson said. The Minnesota State Patrol is reconstructing the crash and will be investigating the incident for review and possible charges by the Carver County Attorney’s Office, Olson said.

County libraries sponsor bus trip to Fort Snelling
The McLeod County public libraries — Brownton, Glencoe, Hutchinson and Winsted — are sponsoring a bus trip to Fort Snelling on Saturday, Sept. 7. The coach bus will leave each of the libraries between 8 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. (times to be determined) and return about 3 p.m. Lunch is not provided so attendees need to bring a sack lunch. Fort Snelling is a historic state landmark and played a significant role during the early years as part of the Minnesota territory and as Minnesota became a state. Fort Snelling was important during the Civil War years, and during the U.S.Dakota War of 1862, as well as into the 1900s. Registration is needed, and a bus waiver needs to be signed. Visit the Glencoe Library to register and sign the bus waiver. There is no charge for this bus trip. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. This program is funded by Legacy dollars of the state of Minnesota Legacy Amendment of 2008. ***** Parents and students are beginning to think about going back to school. A library reminder: keep your Pioneerland Library card up to date. Parents should come to the library to renew and update any information on their and the children’s cards. Any fines accrued on the account should be paid at the time of renewal. The Pioneerland Library System is asking patrons to provide an e-mail address to receive any notices; including a courtesy notice that books, audiobooks, magazines and DVDs will be due in a few days. Parents will need to give their e-mail address on their children’s card accounts. Renewing a library card now will help when your child has library needs during the school year. Children ages 5 and older, living in McLeod County, may have a Pioneerland Library System card when a parent fills in the application including a Minnesota driver’s license or Minnesota ID number. If a card is lost, there is a $3 charge for a new library card. Friend the Glencoe Library on Facebook and check information on the website: www.glencoepubliclibrary. webs.com.

Chinese take out made at home
I love it when I find restaurant-style recipes that I can make at home. I love to eat out, but it is not something we can do all the time. I used to live way too close to a PF Chang’s. The lettuce wraps are to die for. It was always way too easy to call on my way home from work and order take out. I was really excited to find a recipe for similar wraps. It is easy to make and freezes really well. I liked that I could freeze individual portions for myself when I lived alone. Lettuce Wraps 1 teaspoon sesame oil or other oil 3 garlic cloves, minced 3 cups minced cremini mushrooms 1 cup minced shiitake mushroom caps 1 pound ground chicken breast 3 cups shredded napa (Chinese) cabbage 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper 1 8-ounce can water chestnuts, (drained and minced) 1 cup minced green onions 2 tablespoons oyster sauce 2 tablespoons soy sauce 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro 24 Boston or iceberg lettuce leaves Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, and cook for two minutes. Add mushrooms and chicken; cook for eight minutes, stirring occasionally. Add shredded cabbage, salt, crushed red pepper, and water chestnuts; cook for five minutes or until cabbage wilts. Remove from heat, and stir in onions, oyster sauce, soy sauce and cilantro. Spoon about three tablespoons chicken mixture into each lettuce leaf. I don’t always use the napa cabbage; regular cabbage works greats in my opinion. I usually don’t have sesame oil on hand either so

Attending scout camp
Local Boy Scouts from Troop 352 recently took part in a scout camp at Many Point Camp near Park Rapids. Eighteen scouts and seven adults attended. The scouts included, front, left to right, Andrew Jungclaus, Ben Pevestorf, Cole Mathwig, Austin Brelje (behind), J.J. Ingeman (behind Brelje), Cole Janke, Earl Janke, Isaac Swift and Mason Husted. In the back are Ethan Bass, Mitch Beneke, Tyler Hausladen, Michael Dietz, Kyle Beck, Austin Mathwig, Mark Broderius, Dylan Richter and Adam Garoutte. The adults were Scoutmaster Kevin Dietz, Tony Hausladen, Bob Mathwig, Mark Janke, Dave Swift, Lee Broderius and Kurt Pevestorf. The scouts earned 56 merit badges, Kevin Dietz said. The scouts posed with patrol boxes that handled their supplies. The boxes were made from wood donated by Plato Woodwork. Some of the scouts’ expenses were paid with money raised through a sandbox fill program, with the sand donated by Knife River, Kevin Dietz said. The supplies that were not used by the scouts at the week-long camp were brought home, and about 26 pounds of canned food were donated to the McLeod Emergency Food Shelf. The regular Troop 352 scout meetings will begin again each Sunday at 6:30 p.m., in the Glencoe City Center basement meeting room.

Dead or Alive
ecently I suffered a serious health problem. A day or two after having coming home from the hospital I awoke in the early morning hours with my wife Beth touching my back in a strange new way. She was poking me like someone fearfully touching a dead snake, or a farmer cautiously testing an electric fence to see if it’s working. I soon realized that she was actually checking to see if rigor mortis had set in! I asked her, “Are you checking to see if I’m dead?” She explained, “You were breathing so quietly – I couldn’t tell!” I felt a little bit like a downed deer that was being prodded with the end of a barrel or an arrow to see if it’s still alive. Most of us have done something similar. How about you? Have you ever jiggled a baby crib, tugged on a pillow hoping for movement, or bent down close to an aging parent straining to hear if they are still breathing? We are always relieved when we find life. To my wife I looked like I might be dead, but was really alive. Nevertheless, do you know that it is possible for a group of believers (a church) to have the opposite problem? In the book of Revelation the church at Sardis looked like they were alive, but they were spiritually dead. The Lord spoke to this church and said, “I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead” (Revelation 3:1a). The fact is Sardis was a church that had a great history, but it was no longer what it once professed. It had a reputation of being alive, but it was no longer growing – it was going. Indeed, the church at Sardis was in dire need of spiritual CPR. As the late Southern Baptist preacher Adrian Rogers pointed out, “A church will either evangelize or it will fossilize, but it will not stand still.” I am reminded of a man in the Milwaukee, WI area who ended his life in his home. However, because the lawn was mowed and the snow shoveled by the city (and the cost for these services was then added to his property taxes) it was assumed by neighbors he was alive and behind the scenes taking care of things. No one realized he was dead until workers found his nearly skeletonized body in his home more than four years after he was last heard from. Indeed, things are not always as they appear. That was certainly the case with the church at Sardis. When our profession of faith does not match with our practice – we are living a life displeasing to the Lord. The believers in Sardis were attempting to coast on their previous reputation. Therefore, the Lord “poked” this church with His word saying, “Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God. Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.” (Revelation 3:2-3). Friend, when God “pokes” us what will He find? This weekly message is contributed by the following concerned citizens and businesses who urge you to attend the church of your choice. To be added to this page, contact us at 320-864-5518.
